I’ll have a look at that vid shortly!
this is my own opinion - for me personally, keeping carbohydrate foods within the boundaries of ketosis eating (generally 20 grams or lower per day), I don’t get cravings anywhere near like I do when I’m eating bread, porridge, anything remotely processed in terms of starchy foods.
I’m currently doing Stoptober with alcohol, sugar, and processed starchy carbs taken out of the equation - this is not the first time I’ve adhered to this way of eating - and I have practically no cravings for food whatsoever, even when hovering around the 800-1000 calories per day mark.
Why this happens I think is where people start to come in with theories, pseudosciences and ideas about hormones and satiety, but for me, once I’m adapted (I’m currently 28 days of 20g or less) I think about food FAR less.
You could argue being sober could be causing this, or exercise, or placebo effect, or the fact you shed tons of water weight straight off the bat which makes you feel good, but a lot of people report the same thing about hunger dying off when you eat the keto way.
You can only try yourself and find out yourself really. First two weeks for me were HORRENDOUS, headaches, irritable, tired, brain fog, but suddenly it all just seems to kick in, I’m currently feeling completely boss and can quite easily walk past the bread in the kitchen, not care a monkeys when I see my mum eating a Twix or my dad eating crisps.
Can you keep such a strict way of eating up long term though, it all depends on how much you enjoy eating eggs, meat, butter, cheese etc and generally keeping fruit, bread, pasta, sugar out of your life - if you can, I’d say it’s worth a shout, otherwise just persevere with the outright calorie control with the foods you enjoy eating and try and deal with cravings in other ways.
